Back for an encore performance at the Annual Flower Show, Marlene Nichols plays Music with a Difference. Marlene also plays at weddings and parties at Caswell House. Enjoy her keyboard offerings both days when you visit the Flower Show!

Marlene Nichols joins us on keyboards again year at the Violet Crown Garden Club Flower Show, in the garden center auditorium. She arrived in Austin a few years ago, from San Jose, California, and found her niche, playing for parties, weddings, and retirement homes. Marlene's life has been filled with music: she was a pianist for Nordstrom's, a piano teacher for 25 years, and sang with the San Jose Symphony for years. Marlene brings a unique and special ambience to any venue, as she plays Music with a Difference-the name of her business! Enjoy the keyboard talents of Marlene Nichols on Saturday and Sunday
